morning, everyone. happy monday. welcome to "early start." i'm poppy harlow. >> and i'm john berman. it is friday, march 25th, 5:00 a.m. in the east. we're going to start with the epic seasonal lie. no matter what anyone tells you, it's not spring. from missouri to pennsylvania, millions of people are dealing with rain, snow, potentially dangerous wind this morning. the mix proved dangerous from indianapolis. cars collided on slick, icy roads. look at this scene in kansas city, missouri. the storm causing significant disruptions at the airport. this is not done yet. parts of eastern indiana and western ohio are under a winter storm warning from early this afternoon. the system continues to track eastward. we got it covered for you. suzanne candiotti in dayton, ohio and jennifer delgado in the cnn weather center. we're going to start with suzanne instanting in the snow, in the spring, in dayton, ohio. good morning, susan. >> reporter: good morning, john and poppy. you know, as one youngster told me, i haven't seen one flower yet! that's right. what kind of spring is this? and here co

a lot of focus on two justices, anthony kennedy and chief justice john roberts, they see the wave developing in support of gay marriage. we have seen that developing. it's moving quickly. what they're likely to do is create the space for states to make their own decisions. look at this clue from anthony kennedy from a speech this week, a democracy should not be dependent for its decisions on a nine from a legal background have to say. >> turning to another controversial issue and that's gun control, overnight, mayor bloomberg is going to be spending $12 million in new tv ads for tougher gun law and he'll target both democrats and republicans. the assault weapons ban that president obama had pushed all but dead in the senate, even though the president is going to push for a vote. this will come to the floor of the senate when they return from their two-week easter break in early april. the president will continue to push. but the real issue now, is whether or not, the senate will expand background checks for all purchases. those in gun shows and those from stores that sell guns. ri

, the traditional swing vote on the supreme court, and chief justice john roberts. they see the wave developing in support of gay marriage. we have seen that developing. now, a majority support in the country is moving very, very quickly. they don't want to risk that. what they're likely to do is create the space for states to make their own decisions. look at this clue from anthony kennedy from a speech this month. "a democracy should not be dependent for its major decisions from nine unelected people from a narrow legal background have to say." try to create the space for citizens to make these decisions. >> turning to another controversial issue and that's gun control, overnight, mayor bloomberg is going to be spending $12 million in new tv ads to convince senators for tougher gun law. will that work? >> we'll see. this week we learned that that the assault weapons ban that president obama pushed, all but dead in the senate. even though the president is going to continue to push for a vote. this will come to the floor of the senate when they return from their two-week easter break in early a
committing to dish out three million. do you think it's a good idea for john boehner, eric cantor and kevin mccarthy whose names are on the court case from the house representing the house gop and the bipartisan legal counsel to continue this fight, $3 million of taxpayer money to oppose doma? >> well, look, this is a position of our party. but, you know, our point in the report, luke, is that, you know, when i was asked at the national press club i think one of the reporters asked me and he said are you still going to fund, you know, rob portman? my response is, of course we're going to help rob portman. he's a good conservative republican. my appointment, luke, i'm not going to get into this sort of back and forth with leadership, but what i will tell you is i think our party needs to have the attitude that if i disagree with you on one issue, it doesn't mean that you're a lousy republican. it means that you're a good republican. it means we agree on most issues and we need to unite our party. we can't build our party if we're going to cut out certain pieces and certain parts that we may
-term large effect. >> john, you wouldn't worry about positioning your portfolio into the weekend even though this is hanging out there? >> i don't think so. for most investors it's really a non-event. >> get out your winter coats, guys. apparently an ohio prosecutor is seek the death penalty for punxsutawney phil who forecast -- did you know that? he forecast an early spring and -- >> i know. i'm excited about it. >> this is honest to god, true, the guy in ohio, michael moezer who is a prosecutor has filed an indictment for phil. >> we need a legal defense fund. >> thank you for coming on, and i like stolfus. next time i promise you that i'll get it exactly right. you didn't put your stuff in mothballs yet, did you? >> no. >> no, no. >> how many games will you watch today, do you think? >> none. i watch the highlights after. >> at least you watch the show, unlike some people. make sure you join us monday.

presidential campaign i worked for john kerry and dick gephardt two great progressives and being for civil unions in that campaign was considered the leading edge. >> it was a big deal then. >> big deal. in 2016 every democrat running for president will be for marriage equality. you know, frankly, i think the republicans as we saw with rob portman last week and the report they put out yesterday are starting to come our way, too. it's only a matter of time. >> that was my question. do you think that, well, if any democrat or for that matter any republican can get through 2016 that the obvious pickle is for republicans who are trying to get through the primaries? >> i think it'll be tough for a republican but if i look at "the washington post"/abc poll yesterday, 81% of people under the age of 30 -- 81% are for marriage equality. if they're not going to be for it in 2016 they're going to be for it in 2020 or 2024. >> vice president biden, maryland's governor, martin o'malley, of course new york's governor andrew cuomo, all of them for same sex marriage. do you think we'll see a sort of a win
sort of vacillated between trying to figure out allegiances. here's what john sununu had to say about all of that on sean hannity. >> bill clinton went about trying to deal with the middle east question in a way that really began to make some progress. there was a balanced perspective. this president is clumsy. he says one thing on monday, changes his mind on tuesday and says a different thing on wednesday. and he doesn't understand that what that does is create a lack of trust. in foreign policy, the one thing i learned working with george herbert walker bush is that the most important thing in the world is for people to trust america and to have a feeling that america will be there in dealing with the national security issues. on both counts, this president obama has lost. >>steve: it is curious, because if you're just watching -- if you saw the president with netanyahu yesterday, you would think they're getting along great. in the past, for all intents and purposes, it seemed like they hated each other. the fact that b.b. netanyahu used to go to school with mitt romney, that didn't
. in our next hour ambassador john bolton and ambassador nick burns will join us on the developing crisis in the country that means a lot for us and our relations in this region of the world. tens of thousands reported a suspicious flash of light spotted streaking across the night sky from florida to massachusetts. and so, what was it? trace gallagher, do you know? >> reporter: yeah, i know. i'm not going to tell you. no, it was actually a meteor, it was like this wide. now, remember, scientists say most of us will go our entire life without seeing a meteor. it seems like everyone saw this one, right? at eight o'clock friday night streaked across the eastern sky. by ten o'clock the american meteor society, nasa, several weather channels had gotten thousands of calls from nine different states, including canada, and as far inland asoo reporting this as a very bright star with a long green tail. meteors are normally the size of small pebbles. one the size of a softball can kind of light up like the full moon. this one, they believe, was a little more than a yard wide, which is why it lit up
that sees ted cruz take on john mccain. >> we had an eminent member of the republican party describe me as whacko bird. if standing for the constitution makes me a whacko bird, then count me a proud whacko bird. >> the kind of intraparty donnybrook featuring ann coulter versus ann coulter. here is what she said two years ago. >> if you don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee. and lose. >> and here is ann coulter this weekend, landing one squarely on the jaw of the very same guy she once wanted to elect president. >> even cpac had to cut back on his speakers this year by about 300 pounds. i'm now a single-issue voter against amnesty. so christie's off my list. >> the next national election is still 596 days away. but there's no rest for republican party still duking it out. how long before a victor is declared? republican strategist mike murphy is not optimistic. predicting we will be stuck in an age of chaos and factional warlords for a while. the battle royale will be the 2015 presidential primary season. robert, you could hear dog wiss in the background during some of tho
banks and right now. and cit group chairman and ceo john thain reacts to the rumor that will not go away. namely that his company has been shopping for a suitor. john will try and lay those fears aside once again, those rumors. >> a look at where we stand as we approach this final stretch, final hour of the day. dow jones industrial down about 26 points. had been down 110. we are well off of the lows. nasdaq looks like this. also pretty volatile in the afternoon here. as you can see, it is down about five points at 3243. s&p 500 really similar move here. down five points. equities showing great resilience, pushing back from a triple digit loss today. will the crisis abroad keep the markets in jeopardy? >> you had to be named steve to be on the panel today for the most part. steven water from russell investments, steve sacks. steve liesman is with us. and then there's that guy santelli who joins us daily as well. dr. wood, are we making too much of this? over the weekend we were all convinced that the markets were going to be slammed today. they were in asia overnight. then things allayed
national correspondent john king who is traveling with president obama in israel. also fran townsend, former homeland security adviser in the bush 43 administration, she's currently on the cia's external advisory committee and former cia officer bob baer. this video we just showed from the assad regime, shown on syrian state television. want to show it again. it's supposedly a victim suffering from a chemical weapons attack. no one shows any physical signs of injury, no convulsions, no vomiting. at least three experts on chemical weapons quote in reports today say that judging from what they see here, it doesn't seem like a chemical weapons attack. knowing what you know about these type of agents and their effect on humans, do you agree? >> you know, it's difficult to tell without examining the patients. and you need sophisticated equipment to do that. a lot of the symptoms you're seeing in these patients could be caused by insecticide, for instance. any organophosphate which sarin is, but the fact that so few people have died or if any have died tells me that this probably wasn't a
obama and speaker of the house, john boehner, both in denial or are they drinking the same stuff? >> i think it's important to recognize is that we've already cut 2.5, 2.7 trillion dollars out of the deficit. if the sequester stays in you've got over 3 1/2 trillion dollars of deficit reduction already so we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. in fact for the next ten years it's in sustainable place. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis, but we all know we have one looming. >> greta: turns out a majority of americans disagree with the president and the speaker of the house. a new poll showing, a fox poll, that 68% of americans describe the national debt as an immediate problem. only 27% say the debt can be handled in the future. mayor, what do you think? the speaker and the president don't think it's an immediate problem? >> i think the american people are far better economists than the people in washington. the reality we do have a serious debt problem. it's been accumulating now for four or five years. under obama it's been accumulating at massive amounts and there'
minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry. he laid a wreath in the hall of remembrance then offered these thoughts. >> this accounting of horror is in the end a source of hope. for here we learn that we are never powerless. in our lives we always have choices. to seccumb to our worst instincts or to summon the better angels of our nature. >> the president made a quick trip to bethlehem to visit the church of the nativity with palestinian president mahmoud abbas and is now preparing to head to ahman, jordan. nbc's chuck todd traveled ahead of the president and joins me live now from there in ahman. chuck, i can only imagine the university of miami cheerleaders brought a smile to your face in amman, jordan. >> good morning. that was a great surprise. we're inside by the way. if you look behind me you can see it's a little dusty out there. there's been heavy winds almost like a sandstorm out here. it's actually something that prevented the president from choppering to bethlehem. instead he had to motorcade there. it's that type of windy day here. i say that because we coul
in at least one other fatal shooting since his release on parole back in january. and cnn's john spelman is with me from colorado springs. jim, how close are they to nailing down whether tom clements' murder was ordered from inside prison? >> reporter: that could be a while. today they hope to use evidence to officially link evan ebel to the killing of mr. clements. he's the only suspect, to be clear on that. we want to be sure to nail that down. they have been working since the first day of this case in prison, trying to see if there was somebody inside that had a part in some sort of conspiracy perhaps as you mentioned, putting out a hit. now, when we talk to prison officials, they're clear this they don't have any indication of this -- of that at this point. they want to be absolutely sure that public officials in this state are safe. and here's why. we have been here at this memorial for tom clements, memorializing this man, people recognized the real human toll that this crime has taken. we heard from his wife, lisa, publicly for the first time, she spoke at the memorial with her da
morning. i'm alex witt. we have big stories at this hour. surprise stop. john kerry visits iraq. the president is back at the white house and the sunday reviews are in. is there success in the middle east? >>> schools are facing a financial meltdown. what could be next? >> decision imminent. could there be a whole new trial for amanda knox in italy? >>> plus, 14 people spanning four states, could it be you? good morning. i'm alex witt. thank you for joining us on this sunday. michael bloomberg squaring off with wayne lapierre on "meet the press". >> i think when you have members that say they think we should have reasonable checks before people are allowed to buy guns, they all support the second amendment as though i do, but there are an awful lot of people that think this is one of the great issues of our times. we have to stop -- >> you just heard mayor bloomberg but he's going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in thei
applause. in jerusalem. cnn's john king is with us from jerusal jerusalem. seemed the president selected his audience well. >> reporter: smart politics, don. the president bringing to israel some of the personal style we've seen on the political campaign trail and the policy campaign trail, if you will, back home. traditionally, an american president visits and goes into the parliament. what would be in there? older people, right? older people. no offense to older people, but the president's trying to put pressure on the poll tigs. he said flat out, i'm a politician, we don't do risky things unless we get pressure from the people. he's trying to rally the younger generation of the israelis, who was interested. he was getting applause from young israelis. he's trying to get them to put pressure on their prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, a conservative, somebody unwilling to say stop settlement building. rise up to your government and said, we want a new israel, different israel. don, we could talk an hour about the obstacles of peace, but nudge your side to move forward, hopefully young
we see. particularly in the senate, obviously. but even in the house. i think the speaker john boehner himself could make a deal with president obama that would include raising taxes. he would do that. the reason he won't do that, is he's afraid of being yellowstone thrown by eric cantor and kevin mccarthy and the tea party caucus and the problem is the republicans who sort of see sense on the budget, or could see sense on the budget, are held back by their own fear of their own radicals. >> what's amazing to me is that, joy, we talked about ryan budget, 2.0, now this is 3.0. there is this effort under way to rebrand the republican party that has been met with varying levels of success. >> right. >> and now they're talking about this as a way of preserving the social safety net. and i always, when i hear that, it's like -- you kind of have to be kidding, right? you may have a different fiscal goals, but don't tell me this is a way of preserving the social safety net. >> it's so funny you say that because i was thinking that i'm remembering the pretty thing sent up with all the
opinion in america is shifting on this issue. "the l.a. times" reports chief justice john roberts' lesbian cousin will not only be one of his invited guests but he's convinced roberts will rule in favor of same-sex marriage. will portman, son of republican senator rob portman, penned a beautiful essay for the yale "daily news" about what it's like to come out but to change your dad's mind on same-sex marriage in the process. people of the westboro baptist church, can't hide from the growing influence of the gay rights movement. directly across the street from their mission stands a gay rights center that's impossible to miss. in other words, the issue of gay rights is now literally at the doorstep of the people most opposed to it. joining us now, chad griffin, president of the human rights campaign, and jonathan capehart, opinion writer for the "washington post" and msnbc contributor. welcome to you both. >> hi, karen. >> thank you, karen. >> jonathan, i want to start with you. you wrote about this today and you said that the, quote, quasi triumphant coverage -- i do love how you turn a gr
a prostitution scandal, bill clinton has never been more popular. on the other side, john edwards and larry craig, of course, of the infamous bathroom footsies. what do you think separates someone who can come back from someone who doesn't? >> i think if you look at a lot of people who have come back. bill clinton being perhaps the best example. someone who was able to sort of get back to focusing on substance and allow that sort of salacious conversation to become a side conversation. for someone like mark sanford, in order to have a big rebound, he's going to have to focus on things like his record as governor, things that make him popular from a policy perspective so that the conversation isn't just one about personality. >> is it mostly about that, do you think, chris? or is the key you've got to apologize and look somewhat sincere? you've got to get punished and seem to suffer. more than just, say, get your name recognition up by being mocked by leno and letterman. >> you can never underestimate the ability of the american people to forgive someone. that is a truism of politics. that being s
selection. by comparison, only 60% approved of pope benedict's election. let's turn to john allen, senior vatican analyst. what was the message the pope had for congregants today? >> well, carol, the message came in his homily, that is the set of reflections in the bible readings that the priest delivers during mass, which pope francis today said power and, remember, this was in a way about him receiving symbol, the cloth he wears around the shoulder and fisherman's ring, power has to be about service, particularly service to the poorest, weakest and poorest, and you saw that symbolism, when he stopped the open air jeep to kiss some children and went over to a sick man, embrace and caress him. this is about setting a tone, carol. basically the last week has been about pope francis introducing himself to the world and this was the grand finale. the end of the beginning so to speak. most people looking at it would say what a beginning it has been. >> it's been quite touching to watch. john allen, reporting live from the vatican this morning. thank you. >>> in florida, a suicide shocked the
, everybody, senator john cornyn from texas. we're live here at "america's newsroom." we have a busy day. martha: good morning, bill. i'm martha maccallum. senator rand paul throws his support behind a path for citizenship for the 11 million so illegal immigrants in america. >> we're trying to add teeth to the bipartisan plan. we want to make sure border security is in there. as conservatives we always worry, you will give them legal status and say we give border security later, it never comes like so many liberal promises. what we're asking for is, every year we get to vote on whether the border is becoming more secure. all immigration reform is dependent on those votes. congress gets to vote. not the administration report. congress gets to vote whether or not the border is secure. bill: that is one senator who is making headlines for a couple weeks now. kelly wright live in washington. what is senator paul's objective here, kelly. >> reporter: the bottom line here, bill, first of all good morning to you as well. senator rand paul believes immigration reform condition not become a reali
sharp criticism at the time. republican colleagues including john mccain called her out on it publically. we invited michele bachmann to come on the program to talk abouter her latest allegations. she declined. the invitation stands open n. the meantime dana bash tried keeping them honest and joins us. you had to chase down the congresswoman. what did she tell you? >> last time i ran after michele bachmann on one of the issues i told you the bad news is she can walk fast in heels. the good news is so can i. h this time she was moving so fast it tested my endurance. i told her i wanted to talk about her speech at cpac, about questionable accusations made about the president's lavish lifestyle. here's how it went. >> i want to ask you is that you said -- you talked about the excesses that he's engaged in, the fact that he has a dog walker which is not true. >> the big point of my speech was about benghazi. this was an absolute disaster a. >> you also made specific accusations about -- >> the secretary of state -- >> spending money that other ps also made. >> the issue is there are four ame
as ban yon partners. i saw you, john. i'm trying to figure out what you were getting at. were you trying to figure out whether he was leaving yesterday? man, that was the biggest stage you've ever been on, isn't it? you looked like you knew it too? >> i was trying to get a little more news out of the guys. i think there's a philosophical question, other central banks have eight-year term limits for their chairman, the bank of england and ecb. alan greenspan was in this job for 19 years. so i wanted to try to get bernanke to talk about whether he thought, you know, that there was a -- that a chairman should step aside after eight years. he didn't bite. >> no, he didn't. he said the only two people with term limits are the president and vice president. oh, you were watching? >> i read afterwards. it was interesting. >> but that -- he could step aside without having a term limit. in other words, he could say i think eight years is an appropriate amount of time, set a precedent. >> jon, if he takes the balance sheet from $1 trillion to $12 trillion and says, see you later -- he's got to be t
